Windows 11 File Explorer crashing when renaming open file

Occasional Visitor

I was trying to rename an .mp3 file and Windows File Explorer was not responding every time I tried. I didn't realize it was open in Windows Media player. There wasn't any prompt, file explorer was just crashing. Currently running Windows 11 Pro version 21H2 Build 22000.194


Edit: Same happens when trying to delete an open file. As soon as Media Player is closed, everything works fine.
